CRRU has written a response to Ontario's proposals to amend Regulation 262 under the Day Nurseries Act. We submitted our response to the Ontario government via the Ontario regulation registry's online submission form.

Summary of CRRU's recommendations:

1. Rethink: We urge the Ontario government to set aside the proposed regulation changes and rethink them within a broader, more comprehensive approach to policy.
2. Engage in policy development: We urge the Ontario government to engage in a robust, holistic, evidence-based, participatory policy development and consultation process on child care and ECEC policy including changes to regulations.
3. Fund: Recognizing that child care continues to be severely underfunded in Ontario, we urge the Ontario government to allocate $300 million (new money) for child care in the coming provincial budget.
